Whooot, whooot, it’s Thursday and though I am in between chaos and everything, I am also between hump day and weekend. Which makes it a bit better if you ask me. Thanks to lovely Amanda for hosting our ramblings on this very Thursday
In the lurch
EVERYONE is sick. My husband is sick, my colleagues are sick, half of my family is sick (my little two year old niece broke her leg this week) and practically every single plan I had for this month is being cancelled right now. I am still here holding up the flag – one must do this, right? This means at home I go food shopping, I am doing most of the cooking, I am doing all the cleaning and when I come home in the evening I try to comfort the still sick hub. At work I am coping with all the telephone inquiries, I am doing the post, I am battling with all the officials, I try to lead the assistants (not much work – off sick, too), I step in at events (and I hate to work with female teenagers!) and I try to get my own work done along the way. Which – ironically – is left undone first. AND I try not to get sick myself. At least one thing I am doing amazing with until now. Finger crossed…..
Crossfit Girl’s Problems
I had a conversation with another Crossfit Girl yesterday in the changing rooms which made me think. We have both been approached regarding our bruised arms and legs. We both didn’t understand in the beginning but during the respective conversation it came clear that people were concerned we might be victims of domestic abuse. I personally think – though there was nothing to be concerned about in our cases – it is a very good thing that there are people who are brave enough and care enough to step up and confront somebody with such a touchy and unpleasant topic. I am not sure if I would. Which leads me to the next topic…..
Highschool all over!
At the moment I witness something I’ve heard of but never really seen in practice before: Mobbing under adults. It’s a nasty situation I and I am not going into detail but I just can’t come over the fact that grown-ups bully other grown-ups! That’s so ridiculous. And when I try to analyze the situation it’s the same as if we’re thrown back to highschool: it’s about popularity and power. I really don’t know what to do. Nobody could doubt that I side against the bullys but so far I am not involved at all and only know the situation because I was told what happened. My first impulse: call their parents and send them to detention! So ridiculous!
I know what I should do: Throw a pie at their faces! I’ve got some practice now 😉 See I can’t even be serious about it!
And as a happy ending for this post…
I got: Bloody
You’re cultured and refined, and American swear words aren’t enough for you. You’re sophisticated. You’re the type who has discriminating taste and enviable grace. Like your persona, your cursing vocabulary is simply a cut above the rest.
That’s fun I really do say bloody a lot 😀 But I do not mind the good old FUCK as well 😉 Swearing is good for mental health. It’s true – there is scientific evidence!
Have a nice Thursday and get out a few swear words if necessary!
